Even though price isn't an issue for you, I wouldn't pay a premium for a top of the line CPU. Today, a Core 2 Duo should be fine for what you do. Since you watch movies, maybe put the extra cash towards a nice monitor or a killer surround sound system.
if heard all about intels core 2 extreme qx6700, but im still a little fuzzy about what computer i should invest in. mostly all i do is download movies and surf the internet while chatting with friends. in your opinion, which computer should i buy if i were to JUST download large movies, and why. and again in your opinion, which one should i get if i downloaded large movie files AND had a few im's open while having a few internet explorer tabs up, and why. i think im leaning somewhat towards the apple mac pro. but once again, i cant make a decisive decision. all i want to do is access the internet, clicking on links and having them load lightning fast, while i have my downloads going.........which i would also like to go as fast as i can. i should also mention that price doesnot matter to me.
thanks for all your help,
